I didn't think I was wheeling it that hard but I was told that when I went up the one hill that they saw my tire move sideways.

edit: those speed bumps at walmart are getting really steep!

That is the only thing I can think of but IRO is sending me a new one free. I would rather it bend then shear off like some other brands.

Still would have never imagined it doing that, I have the RE HD track bar which I assume is similar in size and it would take some crazy forces to bend it. I just ordered an IRO tie rod, hopefully it'll hold up better than your track bar

After last night I think I will need a better Transmission cooler. After going up the one hill my trans temp was ~ 230 degrees.

I replaced the crappy Crown Automotive TRE for the drag link. The stupid boot cracked the first time I went offroad. I bought a Moog one this time and hopefully it will last.

Not even 1,000 miles on it and it looks like this.

That's the reason I went with IRO for my 5.5 CP LA kit. You break it, they will replace it. ;-)
